PalaFitFood – Science of the Stomach

Cooking with regional and seasonal ingredients – what is edible and how can I prepare it? This question is of universal concern, both in the ancient past, as it is today. The pile dwelling sites have been under water, in an oxygen-poor environment, and the quality of preservation of organic materials is exceptional. Only because of this, can our archaeologists discover so many details on the topic of food and nutrition of the Neolithic and the Bronze Age. We present you some of this knowledge in our food blog PalaFitFood , in everyday language and in small, bite-sized snacks. Recipes and cook-offs are meant to inspire every foodie, connoisseur and home-chef, to participate and to experiment with us
